Virtual Docent Tour

First Glimpse: Introducing The Buck Collection

Welcome to the virtual docent tour of First Glimpse: Introducing The Buck Collection at the UCI Institute and Museum for California Art.

First Glimpse was on display on the University of California, Irvine, campus at the Claire Trevor School of the Arts during fall of 2018. This virtual docent tour is intended to serve as an easily accessible and flexible way to look deeper and learn more about the exhibition artworks, allowing visitors like you to experience First Glimpse, again or for the first time, in a different light and from new perspectives.

This website serves as both a digital tour and archive of First Glimpse. The digital tour is an enduring, easy-to-navigate, and dynamic way to explore and learn more about the exhibition artworks. The Browse the Exhibition page includes all of the artworks that were included in the exhibition, but you can also explore the exhibition via our Browse by Genre page to learn about how the artworks fit stylistically or conceptually into art historical movements. The broadly defined genres into which the artworks are grouped include Abstraction,Figurative, Assemblage, and Light and Space.
